Passionate about Procurement 

Using our knowledge of the industry we were able to significantly reduce the complexity of the supplychain by consolidating existing product supply. We also sourced new low cost manufacturers in China & India at very competitive prices ensuring they meet industry specification and hold the correct certifications. This delivered cost reductions between 15% and 22% on the product ranges reviewed. Also highlighted other areas of savings in stock levels, logistics & courier services.
